About this role

The Government Relations Branch in the Ministry of Health is looking for outstanding people to join the team. This role will allow you to work at the forefront of health reform with a wide range of stakeholders to make a better health system for everyone. Our strategic objectives include:

  • Delivering complex strategic health and social policy reform
  • Transforming Australia?s future health system and making a difference for NSW

The Policy and Funding Reform team negotiates policy and funding solutions, manages agreements, and advocates for NSW in strategic forums for better health system and patient outcomes.


The Intergovernmental Liaison team manages advice and provides support for NSW Health Ministers and Executive at intergovernmental meetings.

If successful, you will work across a variety of projects and policy areas to develop advice, support the successful delivery of projects, and coordinate complex stakeholder engagement activities that are at the core of what we do. 



You?re right for the role if:

  • You can communicate complex issues clearly and effectively
  • You have good stakeholder management and collaboration skills

  • You effectively manage the pressures of a fast-paced organisation to deliver results
